Windows 7: Restoring Hp 6735en to vista after windows 7 upgrade

Windows7 home premium 32 bit upgraded from factory vista OS

Thanks all for advice. I am not very tech savvy so booting into windows is not kicking all the windows broken right?
I am not sure how to do that. The hp recovery partition isn't bootable. I can explore it.

If I understand this then a system image would be sort of a snapshot of your system that you could use as a recovery point when thing go pear shaped?
I have been experiencing some issues described in another post so it's not the best time to create an image now I assume.
Also if I cannot access my hp recovery partition now, how does creating and image of it help
How do i create a fully expanded disk management layout of the partition?
If i obtain a recovery disk set from hp I would then need the that partition to re install the factory software to get a clean reference point where everything works and then work towards Win 7

A system image is exactly that.

Have you read through the links we posted?

If you cannot access your recovery partition then there's no point or way in which you can create a system image.

As I explained, the time to image your hard drive is when you have a pristine copy of Windows and installed applications.

If you do obtain a set of HP recovery discs they will wipe your drive and restore it to its factory state.

As for fully-expanding your disk management layout, just double-click the heading separators at the top of the DM window.

But please, do read through the links we post you, they make understanding the problem so much easier.

Windows7 home premium 32 bit upgraded from factory vista OS

just an update. I have read all the links you posted, very informative but as i said i cannot create a system image at the moment. the plot thickens. i am in the process of getting vista recovery disks but after installing drivers for the graphics card things went pear shaped then lots of other stuff didnt work. my quick play software, bluetooth and other programs stopped working,on the bluetooth issue i uninstalled the devices and re installed, also tried the sp46063 driver as advised from hp website with no luck. does anyone know which driver i should use? i reinstalled the wireless assistant drivers and that works. wish me luck i still have a way to go tho.
